Holiness

2015 Sailing 042

I was holier back then,

following the rules, and agreeing,

loving the security,

of the structure,

learning more than faith though,

unfortunately judging,

condemning,

pointing fingers, at the world,

while my wife was in tears,

wondering who I was,

and where it was all heading.

Then boulders fell,

one disaster after another,

crushing us, without killing us.

Through the sorrow, my wife taught me,

unconditional love,

what it means,

and I’m forever grateful.

I just hate learning,

the hard way.

Love is holy.

  1. I love how Jesus gave the example of a child when the disciples were arguing about who was greatest (children are simple, trusting and very, very humble! lol!) Thank God for our spouses!

      1. We do have families… even our friends are considered family… some people just choose to close their doors and never let the love of family and friends come in their hearts. 🙂 everyone should open their hearts and let people fill such love and joy 🙂 bless you too my friend 🙂
